Distinctive and inviting fragrance
Here we have a wonderful tobacco and leather fragrance from the exclusive 4711 line that doesn't overwhelm you but becomes fine, harmonious and interesting. It is supported by saffron, clove and plum very finely, almost smells like a very noble pipe tobacco that hangs in a room full of old beautiful wooden furniture and gives off its fine aroma. After a while you notice a rose, but rather a black, almost sensual one that is unbeatably beautiful with the combination of patchouli and vanilla. This fragrance is so harmonious and soft for me, it never dominates the whole room but gives its wearer an exquisite aura, of course it has its edges due to the tobacco and the black leather, but it is striking, daring, mysterious and very interesting. I don't find it too superficial or too loud in any way. A fragrance that I would personally like to smell on a man... an aristocrat, a gentleman in a modern, young and bold form or a CEO who surprises his employees every day with his positive vibes. Of course, a very self-confident female who follows her own rules and stands out with her charming femininity can also wear it. Try it out for yourself. After a good hour, the fragrance has become closer to the body but is still very perceptible and stays that way for about 6 hours. Perfume should be subtle and never overwhelming for my environment - that's the art. Great black matte bottle with a price of 120 euros which is absolutely worth it. A special fragrance for people who appreciate good, high-quality fragrances.

Disappointment of the year 2023 - It could have been so beautiful...
First of all, I would like to say one thing in advance - I really like the house of 4711! Whether it's the classics like Echt Kölnisch Wasser or Portugal or the series: Remix, Acqua Colonia (Intense) - certainly not everyone is a fan of every Remix as an example Electric Night, which I really like and for the price can have a nice fragrance gradient and a nice "performance" (at least on my skin).
And inexperienced noses are already positively inclined in this respect, the price is not the deciding factor - not even the fragrance direction as our one is dedicated to it. It's just a question of whether it smells good or not - and that's it.

So in this review I want to convey that I have a really positive attitude towards 4711 (Echt Kölnisch Wasser was my first review here) and don't want to bash it.

So the relaunch of the new (high priced) range was really great news when I received this in my newsletter from 4711 earlier (it was the staff newsletters sent to customers, really an accident?).
Then the attention from the blog post, I really thought this could really be something and more target groups can join 4711.
And since I really like leather, this was the chance for a 4711 leather fragrance for a rather young target group with the quality of the house. And this would have allowed them to engage with the classics....

Yes, it could have been, but unfortunately it wasn't.
I apply my 4711 expectations and what happens - oh no - a negative record, how can you manage that I don't like leather? A blind flight of the perfumers?
I get cheap rubber leather in Wish standard from China with a factory musty smell, this has been fart-filled with some indefinable acid and in between I smell a crushed golden bear. The whole thing is unpleasantly scratchy and pungent on the nose.
Too bad 4711 - this could have been the release of the year, the marketing brought a lot of attention (Power & Energy would complement Jeremy Fragrance doing push-ups) - but such a performance was rather damaging for the house.

Even if this is not a review I like to write, as I find it sad to express displeasure, sadness and incomprehension at 4711, I hope for future releases and whether these are more classic, modern or classic-modern is all right with me - the main thing is that I see the quality of the house again.

Thank you for reading - what was your disappointment of the year?
